Nosebleeds (epistaxis) are a common nasal condition that has many causes including dryness, inflammation, injury, high blood pressure and tumors. Treatment for nosebleeds depends on the underlying cause, which is determined by your doctor after an examination.
Nasal irrigation systems are devices to flush the nose or sinuses to remove mucus or debris and to relieve congestion . Neti® pots are the most common form of nasal irrigations, in which a warm salt water solution is poured into one nostril until it runs out the other. Saline nasal sprays are another form of nasal irrigation. Nasal irrigation is an effective treatment for acute sinusitis and congestion caused by colds and allergies.
